Federer vs Nadal - The Hothead | 1. In this series we explore the unique tennis rivalry between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal-- two very different players, both exceptional, in pursuit of perfection. Swiss-born Roger Federer was seemingly born with a racquet in his hand and at a young age he quickly masters the game, but what he needs to reach the top is to learn how to master his emotions. Meanwhile, Spaniard Rafael Nadal learns the game under the tutelage of his uncle Toni on the clay courts of Mallorca, where the decision to make him a left-handed player separates him early from his competition.

Rank #1: 2. Aristotle. Aristotle, 384-322 BC, joined Plato’s Academy in Athens at eighteen and remained there until the age of thirty-seven. He was not a citizen of Athens. His writings constitute the first comprehensive system of Western philosophy. He tutored Alexander the Great. That experience provided him with an abundance of supplies to work with. He established a library in the Lyceum.After Plato’s death, Aristotle shifted from Platonism to empiricism. Aristotle’s two main works in philosophy were about ethics [Nicomachean Ethics] and politics [Politics]. Aristotelian ethics were more practical than theoretical. He aimed at becoming good and doing good as an individual. Reason is the distinguishing characteristic of human beings. Aristotle’s work Politics addressed the city (polis), which he viewed as organic. He stated that “man is by nature a political animal.” Kingship, aristocracy and polity are the three good groups of the polis. The aim of the city was to allow some citizens the possibility to live a good life and to perform beautiful acts. Aristotle did favor government education. He, also, felt that some men were slaves by nature and were better off being ruled by others.Lecture 2 of 10 from David Gordon's The History of Politcal Philosophy: From Plato to Rothbard.
Rank #2: 5. John Locke. John Locke, 1632-1704, was the Father of Classical Liberalism. Human beings in their rationality are in God’s image. His law of nature was ethical and universal. Human preservation was tantamount. Each person has a property in himself. Property precedes government.Locke thought the mind was a blank slate, contrary to Cartesian philosophy based on pre-existing concepts. The earth is given to humans in common. Locke’s doctrine that governments need the consent of the governed is central to the Declaration of Independence. He advocated separation of powers and believed that revolution was not only a right but an obligation sometimes.Locke had close ties to Shaftesbury, founder of the Whig movement. The overthrow of King James II by William III with his wife Mary II of England was the Glorious Revolution of 1688. Locke’s Essay Concerning Human Understanding and the Two Treatises of Civil Government and A Letter Concerning Toleration were written after his return from exile.Lecture 5 of 10 from David Gordon's The History of Politcal Philosophy: From Plato to Rothbard.

Rank #1: The Ethics of Eating. This show will be simulcast on ModernRock 91.5. Listen in HD at http://ethicstalk.cmich.edu.Join us tonight on Ethics Talk as we sit down with our friends from Campus Grow. We will discuss the current state of our global food system. We will take a look at the impacts of subsidies, GMOs (genetically modified organisms), and the global dependence on imports/exports. Consider: Where did your dinner come from? Where should it come from? Who is impacted in what way when I eat? Are the ethical dimensions of food so grave as to implicate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? These are just a few of the questions that will be addressed on this week's episode of Ethics Talk.
Rank #2: The End of Moral Relativism? The Nuremberg Trials & Morality. The historic trials of high ranking Nazi officials after World War 2 introduced "crimes against humanity" to the list of international crimes. In this show, we focus on "crimes against humanity" and the debate surrounding this category of crime. At the heart of this debate is the philosophical question about the nature of morality, and its relationship to the law and state sovereignty. Do other countries have the duty and the right to hold leaders accountable if they commit atrocities against their own people ? Were the Nuremberg trials simply another instance of the claim that justice and morality are nothing but "the interest of the stronger"? By focusing on the Nuremberg trials and the charge of "crimes against humanity," we will show how this philosophical debate has unfolded and implicated the international justice system.

Rank #1: 2007 Lecture 3: Locating ourselves in the world . One strategy for responding to the knowledge argument exploits an analogy between knowledge of phenomenal experience and essentially indexical or self-locating knowledge. I think this is a promising analogy, but I will argue that before we apply it, we need to get clearer about the contents of self-locating belief and knowledge.
